Grough: Pure & Dry -5 best in test sleeping bag review with score of 81/100
The outer fabric feels tough and the lining is smooth and comfortable. The neck baffle can be cinched using its drawcord and there are also Velcro fastenings at one side to get a complete seal. The double-puller main zip has a double baffle, one side of which is insulated, and the hood can also be cinched in via a drawcord.
There’s an internal pocket with Velcro fastening at chest level, big enough for a smartphone and wallet. The Pure & Dry -5 has two webbing loops for hanging while drying.
Packability was good, the size in the stuffsack being the second smallest in the test. Quality was very good.
The Tundra Pure & Dry -5 also comes with a bag for uncompressed storage when not in use.
The Tundra sleeping bag was comfortable, with plenty of room internally. Warmth was very good and the down lofted very well. The lining is cut smaller than the outer face to prevent the down being compressed. Feet felt warm too, thanks to the extra down used in that area.
The hood drawcord and neck gaiter cord worked well and provided a snug fit around the head to keep warmth in. It was comforting to know that in the damp of a cold morning, the waterproof face fabric kept the moisture out.
The zip worked well and didn’t snag. An inner baffle protected the zip and provided draughtproofing.
